the UK's premier funk band started out as a quartet gigging in small clubs in the Southeast of England in 1999, playing classic funk tunes by artists such as The Meters and The JB's. As the gigs got bigger, so did the band and they were soon complemented with the now renowned Speedo Horns and the all-girl soul vocalists The Speedettes. In 2000, the first single "Soul Safari" was released on the seminal New York based label Soul Fire and was soon followed with a slew of fine releases on other labels such as Timmion and Kennel Klub. Each single was released on 7" only and limited to 500 copies. The emerging modern funk boom of the mid 90s, aided by magazines such as Big Daddy and DJs Keb Darge, Snowboy and Jazzman Gerald, lapped up the authentic sounds and tight arrangements. These early singles sold out immediately and not surprisingly now fetch a handsome price on various on-line auction sites. It is these early groundbreaking singles that this compilation is dedicated. None of the 12 tracks have been released on CD before, with 3 of the tracks being previously unreleased. From the firing opener of “Speedometer Parts 1 & 2” through to the heavy funk workout of “Hold The Bus” it is easy to see this bands influence on the style of artists such as The Quantic Soul Orchestra, Breakestra and any other band in the modern funk scene.Over the years, Speedometer have worked with many of the US funk legends includingJoe Quarterman, Eddie Bo, Marva Whitney, Sharon Jones, James Bell (Highlighters), Lee Fields, and Billy Wooten. All the artists were blown away by Speedometer's authenticity and dedication to faithfully creating the original soul-funk sound. We hope you are too!

Bo Diddley - Drive By Bo Diddley: Tales From The Funk Dimension 1970-1973

Bo Diddley we already love you — but this set gives us another reason why! Although Bo's probably best known for his classic R&B work of the late 50s and early 60s, but during the 70s he also managed to cut some massively funky albums for Chess — working in the blues revival/funk turnover sound that was pioneered in the Cadet Concept studios with some of the label's classic artists of earlier years. The grooves on this set are amazing — heavy funk all the way, and filled with a ripplingly strong guitar sound over heavy drums and bass — still handled with the same offbeat sense of humor that we love in Bo's older work, but retuned nicely for the hip heavy sound of the 70s!

Eddie Bo's Funky Funky New Orleans: Rare & Unreleased New Orleans Funk 1968 – 1971

Although Eddie Bo is long known as a funky peformer in his own right, during his years on the New Orleans soul scene, he also spent a good deal of time producing records for other artists. This long-overdue compilation brings together a funky funky batch of recordings that Eddie did with other artists in the early 70s, plus a few under his own name that did not appear on the other Funky Delicacies comp of his work. The sound is heavy heavy funk all the way through — with lots of nice basslines and hard drums — and although some of the cuts have appeared on other comps, there's more than enough new stuff here to keep your ears fresh!

General Elektriks is the brainchild of Hervé ‘RV’ Salters. A French national and a keen vintage keyboard player, Salters was playing keys for his bands and for various artists in Paris (Femi Kuti, M, DJ Mehdi etc…) before he moved to San Francisco in 1999.

He sarted working on funk collages as he was moving to the US, using his favorite keyboards, a computer and a mic. GE became a musical journal that followed RV through his move to Seattle, then back to the Bay Area, in Berkeley, where he currently resides. There, he hooked up with the Quannum crew (Blackalicious, Lyrics Born, DJ Shadow…) and started sessioning for them. He invited Quannum’s own Lateef The Truthspeaker and Chief Xcel on a few tracks, then completed the 1st GE album, ‘Cliquety Kliqk.’ Hailed by URB as ‘Ennio Morricone for the 21st century,’ the album is a far out mix of vintage funk, hip hop beats, noir riffs, cinematic arrangements, pop melodies and digital twinkle.

After touring behind the album, Salters joined Blackalicious in the studio to work on ‘The Craft’ and toured with them for over a year. Concurrently, he formed San Francisco trio Honeycut with singer Bart Davenport and drummer/programmer Tony Sevener. Quannum Projects released their critically acclaimed 1st album, ‘The Day I Turned To Glass,’ in 2006. As he was touring with Honeycut and laying keys down for more artists (Lifesavas, Curumin,, Jel, The Mighty Underdogs, etc…), Salters started working on a second GE effort. ‘Good city for dreamers’ was completed in the fall of 2008. On 'Good City,' RV whips up his own take on psychedelia, one where future soul, oldschool pop, sampling, indie rock, hip hop and free jazz make sparkles as they collide. In doing so, the French expatriate joins the growing ranks of artists who are citizens of the world, nomads who create a sonic landscape that feeds as much on their origins as it does on their travels.

This is the fourth solo album by Quantic and Will Holland's eighth full-length production. A year and a half in the making, 'An Announcement To Answer' marks the next step in the evolution of Quantic's sound - broadening his musical palette whilst still delivering the trademark funky grooves that have made him a sure-fire floor-filler for DJs worldwide.
Inspired and educated (as opposed to influenced) by the records he discovered whilst travelling and working in Puerto Rico, Nigeria, Benin, Ghana and Ethiopia, Quantic has fused the traditional sounds of these countries with hip hop, soul, funk and jazz to produce his own potent musical brew.
Much of the album was written and recorded on a laptop in various locations around the world - including Puerto Rico and the Candela studios in San Juan - during an extended period of international gigging and crate-digging. Experimenting with new techniques and collaborating with the talented people he met during his travels has endowed Quantic's music with a greater depth, intricacy and level of sophistication than ever before.
Guest artists on the album include Noelle Scaggs from The Rebirth, Ohmega Watts and Puerto Rican percussionist Tempo, who has previously worked with Roberto Roena of the legendary Fania All Stars.

"Healer Selecta (aka Yvan Serrano-Fontova) is bang in the zone with this fresh new offering. Chunky beats, Surf guitar, Boogaloo breaks, soul, rocksteady (you getting the idea? Eclectic!) It's all here and in fruitful abundance. This kid does not let up his schizoid tastes make him more varied than a kelloggs variety 12 pack".Blues & Soul magazine (Emrys Baird)

"An album that takes in Afrobeat, reggae, soul and even surf guitar. The musical metissage works to perfection on 'Melting pot' with percussion courtesy of Snowboy and vocals reggae DJ style from Asher Storm wheareas on 'Foundation of love' it is Brazilian percussion meets Afrobeat with an underlying piano and guitar vamp that does the business." Vibe UK (Tim Stenhouse)

"Packs a punch of fun and joy!!" (Diesler)

"A fantastic release on Freestyle and love the mix between funk, latin and breakbeat. This album is at thetime the best i heard this year!" Innervision Records (Ed Royal)

Innvision is Ed & Enne's own label and they've released most of their work through Innvision. They've been featured in countless playlists of the tastemaker's tastemakers like Makossa (G-Stone/FM4), Jon H (Fort Knox Five), Kid Loco (Yellow Productions), and Rob Birch (Stereo MC's), and they've contributed to Brazilectro and Ursula 1000's "Ursadelica" to name the least. The Pink Panther track was from their second single "Born To Funk" which sold out within a month (that's the track featured in Ursadelica as well). They've also done remixes for the likes of All Good Funk Alliance, Soulphonic Sound System and Parov Stelar.

When it comes to the music on The Groove Collage you'll get a little bit of everything, but what else would you expect. There are healthy Brazilian music influences here, as well as Afro-Latin grooves of all kinds. Added to that are some exquisite lounge moods, demonstrated best in songs like the opener "Funky Kitchen", which is well suited to lovers of Ursula 1000, Thunderball, or Kraak & Smaak. "Vamos Irmanos" was released as one of the singles off The Groove Collage (as was "It's Hip To Be Square") and it's a heavy Latin groove saturated with funky keys and horns over a smooth layer of breakbeats. This one is going to hit fans of Fort Knox Five or Skeewiff right.

Funky grooves, psychedelic sitar, and mod Hammond organ - a magnificent blend that's every bit as dynamic as the image on the cover - served up as the long-awaited album from this cool European combo! The album's got a feel that's somewhere between 60s spy soundtracks and Brit library work - but also carries a tighter, funkier groove overall - a contemporary ear for the best funky elements of the old days, served up with production styles that continue a very classic groove! The whole thing's a real unexpected delight - a set that grabs us with the same sort of energy as the older Blow Up scene during its best years - with no kitsch, no nonsense, and a brilliant sense of sound throughout.

"Super tunes, full of Hammond, wah-wah, sitar, Moog, drum breaks. What with the shifts in textures and mood it's far more preferable to what the other bands of this ilk have been turning out over the past few years! Classy and cool ! " Jon Mojo Mills - Shinding Magazine (UK)

"Ces cocktails furieusement pop pourraient bien devenir aussi cultes que les annes 60. C'est, en tout cas, tout le mal qu'on leur souhaite." Joachim Bertrand - Only Groove (France)

"The first releases by Stereoscope Jerk Explosion are nothing short of marvelous! Stereoscope Jerk Explosion have taken a classic sixties club sound and made a genuine classic to sit alongside the masters." Martin Lawrie - Soul Generation (UK)

Researches begun years ago, diggin dusty vinyl crates for obscure samples. The discovery of italian '60s and '70s soundtracks was a crucial point; from that moment on nothing sounded as good and interesting as electrifying tracks from exploitation movies.

By the summer of 2007 time was ready and Tommaso Colliva (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Arto Lindsay) invited an incredible jam band formed by Massimo Martellotta (Stewart Copeland, Eugenio Finardi, Mauro Pagani) on guitars and lapsteels, Enrico Gabrielli (Afterhours, Mariposa, Morgan) keyboards and brass, Fabio Rondanini (Pino Marino, Roberto Angelini, Collettivo Angelo Mai) on drums and Luca Nano Cavina (Transgender, Lindo Ferretti, Beatrice Antolini) on bass to record at omniaB studios in Milan.

During that first two days long recording session Calibro 35 became a killer combo performing classic and obscure themes, trying to bring something contemporary to the compositions but still remaining very respectful to the originals. Original tunes appeared soon with the same aim, recreating the attitude, the sound and that strange mixture between jazz, funk, rock, classical and improvvisation that made italian soundtracks known worldwide.

Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar. Hendrix's innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form. Because he was unable to read or write music, it is nothing short of remarkable that Jimi Hendrix's meteoric rise in the music took place in just four short years. His musical language continues to influence a host of modern musicians, from George Clinton to Miles Davis, and Steve Vai to Jonny Lang.

Baby Huey - The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend

Fantastic! The lost link in the Chicago soul scene of the 60s was Baby Huey — and he was a pretty darn big link too, if you've ever seen him in pictures! Weighing in at about 300 pounds, Baby Huey was sort of a rockin' soul star who played clubs on both sides of the city, to audiences of all types — working in a party-styled blend of funk, rock, and soul that was one of the most powerful grooves going down in the Windy City at the time! Huey sadly passed away at a very young age, leaving only this full album as his legacy.

2009 collection that incorporates material from their recordings with the Westbound and Warner labels. 2009 is the 40th Anniversary of Funkadelic's first release and this compilation celebrates that landmark. Over a period of 12 years from their Westbound debut album to the release of 1981's The Electric Spanking Of War Babies, Funkadelic, piloted by George Clinton, redefined the way that black music was recorded and presented. They scored 20 R&B chart hit singles and a dozen chart albums, but their influence was far greater. Standing On The Verge includes the two #1 R&B singles 'One Nation Under A Groove' and '(Not Just) Knee Deep', sample favorites such as 'I'll Bet You' and 'Undisco Kidd' and dancefloor monsters such as 'Cosmic Slop' and 'Better By The Pound'.

Heavy funk in a variety of cool colors - the first-ever collection of work from German sound library labels Golden Ring & Happy Records - and a real revelation to our ears! Grooves are plenty heavy throughout - lots of funky drums and burning basslines - with instrumentation that runs the gamut from choppy fusion to soundtrack-styled funk - often with lots of keyboards and guitar in the mix!

The labels are almost a refuge for players who'd previously cut more famous funky work at the MPS label - artists who include Peter Thomas, Klaus Weiss, and Sigi Schwab, all of whom make some key appearances here - moving at the same great funky jazz pace they were hitting earlier in the 70s. Other artists are more obscure, but equally great - and the set's a true treasure trove of funky grooves you'll be hard-pressed to find elsewhere. Titles include "Present News" and "Jumping Balls" by Klaus Weiss, "Sound Colours A" by Peter Thomas, "Getting High" and "Get The Groove" by Sigi Schwab, "Mr Marco's Blues" and "Chicago Song" by Ralph Marco, "Open Up" and "Pick It Up" by Frank Mantis, "Late Train" and "Dark Alley" by Ken Aldin, and "Just Funky" by Klaus Weiss. © 1996-2009, Dusty Groove America, Inc.

VA - Funky Flea Vol.1 - Rare Grooves From The Brussels Fleamarkets

VA - Calypsoul 70 - Caribbean Soul & Calypso Crossover 1969-1979

A cool collection of funky grooves from the Caribbean — tracks that take a strong influence from American soul and funk, then blend it heavily with hip rhythms from the islands! A few of the names here are familiar, but most are relatively obscure — and put together, the tunes on the set illustrate a hugely under-tapped scene that's filled with wonderful tunes — tracks awash in jazzy rhythms, skittish percussion, and a range of styles that move past much more familiar Jamaican sounds from down south. Drums here are often quite heavy, and matched by other percussion as well — not to mention jagged guitar lines and bass bits that really send the whole thing home!

DVD Secondhand Sureshots the film
RECORD 12-inch Picture Disc, original music by Daedelus, J-Rocc, Nobody and Ras G, plus a megamix by Kutmah
SLIPMATS Left & Right.
SLEEVES Hand-screened gatefold LP sleeves individually printed by Hit+Run

Here's the short and sweet...

Secondhand Sureshots is a filmed experiment in creative sound recycling. Dublab Dublab directors Bryan “Morpho” Younce & Mark "frosty" McNeill sent beatmakers Daedelus, Nobody, J.Rocc and Ras G on safari into L.A. thrift stores with orders to make new music out of five finds while the cameras filmed the whole process. The result is a mini-documentary about putting new life into old vinyl. Over 2 hours of footage, music & bonus material.

Secondhand Sureshots will be released Feb. 9, 2010 as DVD & CD, distributed by Stones Throw. Today on our web store we present the exclusive Secondhand Sureshots Deluxe Super Set.

The Deluxe Super Set is a true sound and vision experiment. Dublab scoured Southern California and rescued 500 gatefold LP covers from dusty thrift store bin obscurity. Our graphic friends at Hit+Run took the covers and screen-printed them by hand, making new visual masterpieces to house the first public release of Secondhand Sureshots. Stuffed in this package is all-exclusive material sampled and shredded into new forms fine-tuned to blow your mind. We hope it inspires you to make your own creative gems and jams!

A Dust Brother (Cheeba), a peripheral Beastie Boy (Money Mark), a Headhunter (Mike Clark), and a slew of other musicians join producer Aja West's tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim. Throw in the fact that the album is mastered by Brian "Big Bass" Gardner, better known for his work with gangsta rap acts like N.W.A., and you start to see the hodge-podge of influences involved in this record.

Antonio's Giraffe is funky electric jazz. In that, it hints at the music of the other Antonio, but there the similarities end. While Aja West's original compositions harken to the era of Jobim, this is not a cover record.

Rhodes, horns, and drums ride high throughout. The percussion is exceptional as you might expect with a Headhunter manning the kit. There's nothing extravagant, just good solid rhythm for the other players to work from. The strength here is the Rhodes of both West and Alex Veley and the horn interplay.

"Hold Up" gives a perfect example of the Rhodes getting busy. While songs like "The Mighty Loconchu" show the coordination of the horn players at their best.

This is billed as a tribute to Antonio Carlos Jobim, but outside of the title, I wouldn't haveAdicionar imagem picked up on that. In the end, it doesn't really matter. This is good music that stands on its own without any reference needed. -- C. W. Hall (Atlanta, GA USA)

Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Colorblind (2006)

Artist: Robert Randolph & The Family Band
Title Of Album: Colorblind
Year Of Release: 2006
Label: Warner Bros.
Genre: Blues / Funk
Quality: MP3
Bitrate: 320 kbps
Total Time: 44:17
Total Size: 88,07 Mb (+3%)

Colorblind isn't an adequate title for this album. Randolph's follow-up to 2003's Grammy-nominated Unclassified is bright and energetic as a tie-dye-patterned pinwheel. Mostly its 11 tunes are about grooves plucked from the era of Sly Stone and Stevie Wonder, dappled with brilliant classic rock musicianship (think Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck) and driven by frenetic verve. When things slow down, it's usually to let the young pedal steel virtuoso revisit his roots in the Holiness Church, although the team of pop-world songwriters he collaborates with make the lyrics of Randolph's R&B hymns ambiguous between devotion to a woman or to God. Guests Dave Matthews (singing backup on "Love Is the Only Way") and Eric Clapton (lending second guitar to a hot-but-rote cover of the Doobie Brothers' hit "Jesus Is Just Alright") are oddly subdued, but neo-soul diva Leela James puts sex and smolder into her duet with Randolph on "Stronger." Ultimately, though, this album's all about Randolph himself, who has loosened his grip on the blues and gospel bedrock of his earlier playing to become a master of flashy funk and rock riffs and the owner of a tone so gargantuan it's earned him a place in rock-guitar Olympus--if not Heaven. ~Ted Drozdowski,

Robert Randolph & The Family Band - Live at the Wetlands 2002

Artist: Robert Randolph & The Family Band
Title Of Album: Live at the Wetlands
Year Of Release: 2002

Genre: Blues / Funk
Quality: MP3

This album's all about the blazing virtuosity of Robert Randolph. The pop-music arrival of the young pedal-steel guitarist from the Pentecostal church was shepherded last year by the North Mississippi Allstars and groove organist John Medeski in a brilliant album and group called The Word. With his own Family Band and just one spiritual, the lovely "Pressing My Way," on the set list, Randolph sends lightning bolts through the audience in this August 2001 recording at a now-shuttered Manhattan club. He blends the showmanship of his blues inspiration, Stevie Ray Vaughan, with his own unique instrumental mastery, transforming his steel guitar into something more like a lead vocalist. Randolph constantly makes his 13-string guitar play call-and-response with his own singing, and he breathes fire into Slim Harpo's chestnut "Shake Your Hips" by making it a field day for his stabbing splashes of notes and chords, inventing a different melody for his long solos that's more western swing than swamp blues. Although the shout-and-stomp-along original, "I Don't Know What You Come to Do," raises the crowd, it's the 11-minute finale, "Tears of Joy," that is Randolph's showstopper. The tune's a crafty summation of all his gifts: slow, sliding, rich-toned notes and low-buzzing chords; rhythms that pull from the stately qualities of gospel (enhanced by the way Randolph's steel blends with John Ginty's Hammond organ) and the pure exhilaration of rock improvisation; and beautiful tones that echo from honky-tonk to Hendrix. It's the musical equivalent of a white-water thrill ride. Ted Drozdowski. All Music Guide
